Today’s musical salvation – “It’s In The Way That You Use It”

Some days a little musical assistance makes a lot of difference when the day seems to be crawling towards its conclusion.

Today’s musical salvation is an oldie from Eric Clapton titled “It’s In The Way That You Use It” from way back in 1986.

I created a playlist with a bunch of oldies, mostly from the 20th century. I have it playing on my iPod Classic today and I am grateful for it!

3 flavours of AC/DC’s Thunderstruck

Whether you are a fan of rock band AC/DC or not, you may enjoy these three flavours of their hit song “Thunderstruck”. I was watching videos on YouTube the other day and enjoyed these renditions.

The first version is the band in concert. If you aren’t familiar with the song, this will give you a good idea of how they perform it:

This second version is a cover performed by a Finnish band called Steve’n’Seagulls. It is very country!

This last version is another cover performed by a duo called 2Cellos. You can probably guess how this is going to go.

Terrific subway cover of “Landslides” by Fleetwood Mac

I am a big Fleetwood Mac fan and I really enjoyed Ashley Stevenson‘s cover of the band’s track “Landslides”. Stevenson’s cover was captured on a Chicago subway platform in April 2016 and it worth watching:

Here is Fleetwood Mac’s live version of this track in a concert back in 2009:

One of the best covers of a popular artist’s music that I can remember was a woman singing Tracy Chapman covers in Sandton, Johannesburg more than a decade ago. She sounded exactly like Chapman. If only I had the means to capture that performance back then.
